Antilia Carnival Event

We had a good laugh about the role reversal. Tyson was my first Celebrity interview. Fitting because he is my mentor. And yes I am much taller than Tyson.

These Pictures were taken at the Antilia Carnival event promoting the Caribbean and the various presentations of Trinidad carnival for the 2010 edition of the greatest show on earth. Tyson Beckford and Former Miss Universe Wendy Fitzwilliam hosted the event and top Soca Artist Machel Montano provided the entertainment.

Progress Report

Hey All,

It's been a while, I know. It's hard keeping a blog about progress when you think you are standing still but I had to fill you all in on the happenings. Well for those of you who read my facebook status, you know that I left New York Model Management. To some of you out there you may actually think that it is insane for someone who goes through an experience such as Make Me A Supermodel to get a contract with a reputable agency, to just throw it away after five months. Well the truth is I left NYMM on good terms. I made the decision for myself based on my experiences in the fashion world during those five months. I got the hint, the industry is more about sizing than it is about your look and I had to come to terms with the fact that I wasn't fitting any of the clothes, a sad yet true fact. I am happy, though, that I was able to recognize it now, reevaluate, and change course to a new direction where I feel I would be more successful.

Since I left NYMM I decided to get back to the stage, so I have been auditioning for Broadway as well as TV. Why do I love to pick these highly selective careers? Auditioning has been fun but landing a broadway show is just as hard as landing your first campaign but once you get in it becomes easier...or so I've been told. It's hard but I am still keeping Positive.
